With the 1+2 Language Approach manifesting in Scottish schools, it was important for me to undertake research into what teaching method could motivate learners to learn an additional language. Content Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) is learning a language through another subject. I consider my research to be of importance and of benefit to educational establishments as it offers an alternative method to teaching languages. The findings of my research suggest that CLIL quickly created an engaging, motivational and enjoyable context for language learning. Resulting from this research project, I suggest that teaching languages through a CLIL approach is more engaging than traditional teaching modes.
